The Sixers look to improve their playoff position against the lowly Raptors on Wednesday in Canada.

The Philadelphia 76ers (30-27) will be north of the border on Wedneday when they take on the struggling Toronto Raptors (20-38).

The last time the teams met, Toronto came away with a 99-78 victory. However, one of the catalysts of that win, Andrea Bargnani, could be shut down for the season with a left calf injury. Bargnani scored 24 in that meeting. The Raptors should have Jose Calderon in the lineup. He had a double-double of 12 points and 13 assists in the April 4 game and averages 10.5 points and 8.9 assists this season. The season series between the teams is tied at 1-1.

Leading Sixers scorer Lou Williams is coming off a 20-point performance on Tuesday against the Nets. He's averaged 11 points and 3 assists against Toronto this season. The Sixers could use a big night from Williams if they want to win consecutive games for the first time in a month.

Here are the probable starters for the teams:

Sixers: Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand, Nikola Vucevic

Raptors: Jose Calderon, DeMar DeRozan, Alan Anderson, Amir Johnson, Aaron Gray

Game Info:

Game Time: 7 p.m.
